Downside was formed in early 2012 by musicians Rob Thompson (Vocals), Scott Johnson (Bass), Dustin Santos (Guitar) and Bruce Tobin (Drums) with the intention of bringing something different to the Hardcore Music scene in Hamilton, New Zealand. In December 2012 they released their first EP titled Hold Me Down and the single No Love which were both produced by Jason Long (The Knights of The Dub Table). Before the EP was released Dustin Santos left the band for personal reasons. Johnson then changed to guitar and long time friend Michael Clapham joined the band as bassist. Shortly after the EP was released drummer Bruce Tobin also left the band and was replaced by former Seas of Conflict drummer Josh Hamer. After these line-up changes the band has restructured itself, now having two guitarists instead of one, with Clapham moving to second guitar and Jordan Karl joining on bass.
Downside are currently working on a new EP and playing shows around New Zealand. They have played with numerous New Zealand acts such as Die Die Die, Attic Sky’s, & Parents and international hardcore acts such as Iron Mind, Expire, Touche’ Amore and Darkshaft.
